TRAVEL SOUTH AFRICA LUXURY PAR EXCELLENCE Part 1

When I lived abroad and felt homesick I longed for Africa’s soul; the bush (were we go on safari) represents that part of South Africa's essence to me, whiles Cape Town is its heart. 

"If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?" 
 From OUT OF AFRICA by Isak Dinesen (1885-1962)

CLASSIC AND VINTAGE CARS IN SOUTH AFRICA


Powered From Behind
In the early 1930’s, Central European car designers believed that a rear engine would suit a small car best. This was because it permitted an aerodynamically-efficient body design and it was thought to be cheaper to build. Mercedes-Benz built a few experimental rear-engine cars and even a three-cylinder Diesel, but they proved costly to build. The 130H, with its engine at the rear, made its debut in 1934. It was the first Mercedes-Benz with a central tubular frame and like the 170, had independent suspension all round and hydraulic brakes on all four wheels. Sales were disappointingly low and production was terminated in 1936. At least three of these cars were imported to South Africa but weren’t too popular due to price. This vehicle was purchased for the Museum from the Chrysler agents in Cape Town - traded in originally by a Dr. Du Toit.
